Hello Students and Parents,
We are aware of the Shoreline School District’s choice to close the district down starting tomorrow, March 12th, though Friday March 27th. Superintendent Rebecca Miner addresses the situation here.
The well-being of our students, their family members, and community at large is important to us, and we hope everyone will be as well as can be expected under the circumstances. Therefore, our dojo will be closed Thursday March 12th, and Friday March 13th, so we can better assess the options available.
We have less than 15 students in all classes, and our student body as a whole is less than 250. We are considering several ways to keep our community active and safe as we practice karate, and will have an updated status as to how we will offer training by Monday, March 16, 2020, 1:00 pm.
Please know that we are practicing strict cleaning protocols as outlined by the CDC and the Washington State Department of Health. After speaking with knowledgeable doctors, health care providers, community leaders, and staying abreast of this ever-changing situation, we know that being able to offer a safe program for people in our building may need to be modified.
Therefore, we are considering small group sessions to our school aged children during the day, so parents who need to work outside the home may have an option for their child(ren) to have an in-depth martial arts focused experience while school classes are on pause.
We are also considering offering video style/online training so those who choose not to attend physically will have a means to stay fit and continue to progress in their martial arts journey.
Please reach out to us via firstname.lastname@example.org if a recorded or live video course would be valuable for you or your child. Also let us know if smaller, in-person classes would interest you as well. Notifications or links to content will be distributed via the email we have on file for you, so ensure that the one we have is up to date (you should have received an email similar to this post if it is).
